Dirtybird B2B Throwdown (Miami Edition): The Party You Should Have Gone To

March 28, 2016 -

Daily Beat Staff

The official third day of Miami Music Week 2016 had a full array of different label parties and shows going on, but one of the more interesting ones was the DIRTYBIRD PLAYERS Back2Back Throwdown + NICE AGE - Link Miami Rebels @ Trade. The California Based Label, run by Claude VonStroke, held down the second floor of the facility: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs newly launched label NICE AGE kept the vibes right downstairs.


MAXIMONO got the night of all back-to-back sets going with Orlando’s very own Sage Armstrong. The duo warmed the floor up with smooth bass lines and the well known 'Dirtybird Sound.' Christian Martin & Worthy followed up with an hour of bouncy-house music. The volume was turned up before Worthy unleashed his classic “So Delicious” & the room erupted.


At this point in the night, the entire Dirtybird team can be seen jamming out together in the booth. Ardalan & Billy Kenny kept the flow of the night going with more of Dirtybird’s chunky /jackin' house feels. “Right Here” (Billy Kenny & Aaron Jackson) was played with a combination of noticeably strange visuals. The dance floor was basically at capacity when 1:30am rolled around and it was time to pass the decks.


Will Clarke and Kill Frenzy came out swinging. Arguably the best set of the night, the pair upped the ante with much harder kicks and strange, yet satisfying sounds. Will Clarke’s “The Boogie Woogie” was a track that deserved recognition; Will showed his true DJing abilities with some serious moves with the effects on an extended build up. Although I was very impressed with Will and Kill, J. Phlip & Shiba San did not slow the pace down whatsoever. It was amazing to see a label with such a similar sound not drop the same tracks on repeat.


There was no debate as to what the best set of the night was: Claude VonStroke vs. Justin Martin. I’m getting chills writing this out right now. In my 5 years around the rave scene, I have never seen a non-duo pair rock a crowd like that. Five hours into the night and neither party repeated any labelmate's tracks. Impressive even more was the control the Dirtybird commander’s had over the crowd; they made them feel, think, chill, and dance in the span of 90 minutes with THEIR sound. The Dirtybird Players throw parties that match their team identity - fun. Shout-out Miami Music Week, Trade, Link Miami Rebels and Dirtybird for such a killer event. It's safe to say that you should definitely add this to your list of must-attend parties for next year!
